Today's featured authors are Judith Keim and Tess Thompson. We're members of Your Book Escape, and I thought it would be fun to tell you about their latest releases in a Christmas multi-author series. First off, isn't the bow on the covers adorable? I love it and how it matches the color of Christmas. But though I'm all for staring at pretty covers for way longer than I probably should, I need to tell you about the books!

First up is Judith's book…

Random circumstances brought them together. Love made them family.

Two years after Hailey fell in love with Nick Hensley when her family reunited for her sister Alyssa’s wedding at the Cedar Mountain Lodge, Hailey is happily married to him and living on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Nick teaches guitar and is studying for an advanced degree in music at a local university, and is playing with his band in Ybor City and other spots in the Tampa area. Hailey continues her work writing and illustrating children’s books while trying to deal with her disappointment at not yet being pregnant.

For the first time, she and Nick are not celebrating Christmas in Granite Ridge, and when something shattering happens on that day, Hailey is left to wonder if it’s all part of a bigger plan. She and her sister, Alyssa, the two youngest of the sisters, have remained in close touch and have planned a girl’s weekend in the beginning of April, where even more surprises unfold. This is a sweet story of families and sisterhood.

And now for Tess's book….

Random circumstances brought them together. Love made them family.

Kind, funny, successful, and adoring, Jed Marsh is the man of Alissa Mann’s dreams. But Jed’s parents don’t think Alissa, who supplements her kindergarten teacher’s salary as a cocktail waitress at a gentlemen's club, is good enough for their son. And his controlling mother will stop at nothing to keep them from getting married.

When Mrs. Marsh threatens to reveal Alissa’s secret side job to the school administration and the meddling moms who run the PTA, Jed and Alissa reluctantly call off their intimate mountain wedding. But even after the nuptials are canceled, Alissa agrees to meet her sisters and mother at the beautiful Cedar Mountain Lodge. And in the loving arms of her own family, Alissa just might figure out how to move forward — with or without Jed.

Fans of small-town stories, heartwarming holiday tales, sweet second chances, and whimsical winter weddings will fall in love with Alissa and her soul sisters in CHRISTMAS RINGS, book six of the Soul Sisters at Cedar Mountain Lodge, from USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson.
